The wait is over. The time is now. The College Football season has (finally) returned and all the talk about Johnny Manziel autographs and the off season is over. Every week, we'll be your source for a comprehensive layout of all of the action so you don't miss a minute of the see-it-to-believe-it action.
So kick back and relax. Get comfortable on your couch and make sure there is a cooler nearby so you don't miss Lee Corso, Erin Andrews, Samantha Ponder and the rest of the college football personalities.
What a way to kick off the season! Stanford Head Coach David Shaw will join us live in studio Saturday from 10am to 12 pm on @CFBONFOX..— Erin Andrews (@ErinAndrews) August 26, 2013
MUST-SEE-TV WEEK ONE:
THURSDAY, AUGUST 29
North Carolina @ #6 South Carolina. 6;00 PM on ESPN
The likely #1 NFL Draft pick in 2014, Jadeveon Clowney, starts his Heisman hopeful campaign. Before a formidable SEC schedule, the Gamecocks will face off in a rivalry for the best of the Carolina's. Simply said, Clowney is the rare defensive talent that is must-see television.
Mornin w/the Gamecocks. Got a pic w/the head ball coach & the hit to end all hits :) http://t.co/06PcIcOr3J— Sam Ponder (@samsteeleponder) August 28, 2013
Ole Miss @ Vanderbilt. 9:15 PM on ESPN
The Rebels don't have Eli Manning at QB anymore but that doesn't mean they are anyone to sleep on. Ole Miss is a trendy dark horse team that may make some noise in the best conference in the country. A couple of strong years in recruiting could pay off earlier than expected. Vanderbilt has been steady for a few years now and will be looking to start their season in conference play on the right note.
#24 USC @ Hawaii. 11:00 PM on CBS SPORTS NETWORK
If you're one of the lucky few who has Friday off for the holiday weekend, feel free to stay up late for this upset special. Lane Kiffin is on the hot seat and this is a dangerous way to start the season. The Trojans may be limited on scholarships but they still bring in top ten talent on a consistent basis. Hawaii will be looking to play spoiler and get Kiffin's bags packed early.

If having two starting quarterbacks means you have none, does having four mean you have negative two?— Elika (@steakNstiffarms) August 27, 2013
